REP LIEU STATEMENT ON THE HARVARD ADMISSIONS LAWSUIT
LOS ANGELES - Rep. Ted W. Lieu (D-Los Angeles County) issued the following statement in response to the Harvard Admissions lawsuit.
“I support affirmative action. I also support the use of race in college admissions. Diversity enhances the college experience for all students and diversity is a strength of our nation. I agree with the Supreme Court’s ruling that race may be used as a factor in admissions decisions and urge the trial court to uphold the use of race as a factor in admissions at Harvard."
